Not really sure what got into me to really want to buy a dupe fragrance. Typically impression-type fragrances smell off from the original and have horrendous cheap packaging, suspicious ingredients and basically not even worth my time however I'm actually quite surprised by this one. The scent on La Vida Loca is not "cheap" smelling as I would have assumed. Infact for an impression/replica-type scent perfume, it actually isn't full blast of alcohol at all. Quite heavy on the fragrance oils and minimal on the initial alcohol mist when you spray it (I've had worse luck with designer fragrances in regards to the alcohol issue). Ingredients are very simple: alcohol, fragrance, demineralized water.
The scent dry down is close to the original however it's slightly less sweet and more powdery/musky on me than Viva La juicy. Honestly, I prefer this one more than the original. The smell is a bit more mature but sweet at the same time. It still smells very close though that one can't tell it apart and should just assume the difference is merely due to a body-chemistry reaction on my end.
The sillage unfortunately like a heavy body spray than an EDP though which is why this won't get a 5 but the staying power is still decent and doesn't disappear in a few hours. Viva La Juicy is a very common perfume that I never wanted to spend full money on it but I have always liked the scent that occasionally I would want to wear it. The bottle to La Vida Loca is in sturdy glass with simple text printing and a heavy plastic cap adorned with a basic fuchsia bow... It doesn't look cheap at all that I don't mind putting this on my vanity. If you want a bigger bow, you can always customize it yourself. I've seen these range from $5-10 depending on the store.. I suggest looking around in trendy clothing shops as I've found a gift set with a 3.3oz perfume, 3oz body lotion, 3oz shower gel in a cute gift box for only 5 bucks! What a steal :)
P.S. I agree with the reviewer below that the name to this perfume is ridiculous however when I looking at these among a huge selection of other knock-off perfumes.. there's much worse out there that this one is tolerable.

I won't pay full price for Viva La Juicy & I kept getting outbid for it on eBay so after I read the review below for this knockoff, I decided to eBay it as well. I ended up paying $11 for it but it really does smell just like the real thing & the 3.3oz bottle is not only big w/tons of perfume but it's pretty also. It's creamy, vanilla-y, just a little spicy, warm & sweet-smelling just like the original designer fragrance. Great quality knockoff. The only thing I really hate about this fragrance is the ridiculous name.

I found this at Dollar General on sale for three dollars! I was hesitant due to most perfume knockoffs not having that great of staying power...but this lasts all day especially if you spray it on undergarments. The smell is spot on and is a hit with everyone.
